I said I'd get back to you guys in a couple of days re: the August write off (it's been the better part of a week, but I'm still going to take that as a win). It's been a pretty hectic few days and I managed to churn out more ideas than I can usually … Continue reading Word War One
I swapped a bit of chit chat with an old buddy of mine the other day. We haven't spoken for a bit, so it was nice to catch up. Things are going well for him. He's had a couple of promotions recently, rented a new pad and is looking to change his position into something … Continue reading Game on for Grandpa!
One of the seedlings has been struggling with her maths lately. In order to help her get a grasp of using numbers for things other than sums, I grabbed hold of a copy of Pocket Fantasy RPG and set the girls on an epic adventure.

All that Remains has its first review! Our buddy from the steppe has taken time out from riding and hunting to not only read my post-apoc collection but to give it 5 stars! Give a little cheer for Boda Khan. May his horses be swift and his bows strong! JP

Although it's good to be 'back on it', I can't say I regret sacrificing my daily word count to spend time with the kids. There's something about … Continue reading Back in the Saddle
I think it was my last post I said I should be done with Wolf Mama by the end of the month. Don't get me wrong, it's steaming ahead with the power and force of The Flying Scotsman. Wheels are turning, the whistle's sounding and the fire's burning! Problem is, it's half term week here … Continue reading Ho Boy!
Okay, cheesy title. Sorry about that. Since I'm half-way through the super-secret Project A, I figured this one isn't going to be chucked into the pile of Bad Ideas. With that in mind, I also figured it'd be time to let you all in on what the secret sauce actualy is. If you've been hanging … Continue reading Point of No Return
